Bad day for Britney.
Let’s start by saying we are totally aware that autotune is used to tweak and enhance many of our favourite artists but it doesn’t make the blow any softer to bear when our eardrums are assaulted by none other than the Queen of Pop.
An unedited version of the song ‘Alien’ from Brit’s latest album ‘Britney Jean’, which producer William Orbit is calling a vocal ‘warm-up’, has leaked online.
Orbit has rushed to defend the songstress on Facebook in a slightly bizarre ‘statement’ in which he attempts to explain the producing process, he said “A generous singer will put something down the mic to help the engineer get their systems warmed up and at the right level, maybe whilst having a cup of herb tea and checking through lyrics before the session really kicks off. It’s not expected to be a ‘take’.”
Yeah, yeah we believe you. He did however end the statement with ‘She is magnificent! And that’s that.’ That we will agree on. Listen to the track below and decide for yourself. *Make sure volume isn’t on max.
